Until now, there has been no other place or organization within the thermal
insulation industry that offered a truly unbiased way of looking at the
engineering, application and maintenance of insulation systems. The answer
to this problem is the National Insulation Training Program (NITP). The core
goal of this new 2-day training program is to provide professionals across
all market segments and job functions with a working knowledge of insulation
and insulation systems design that can help avoid costly mistakes that
result in system failure and injury to plant personnel. The concept is to
make the process of designing, specifying, and installing insulation quicker
and easier. The program provides tools
developed and proven by experts, to make designing and specifying insulation
systems easier and more accurate. The tools make the job of engineering
insulation systems easy-once you know how to use them.
Developed by a number of industry experts, the program is presented by a
cadre of instructors who understand real world conditions and challenges.
While insulation manufacturers have provided assistance in course
development, the program is unbiased and strictly focused on maximizing the
potential of people and technology. Participants receive 1.5 continuing
education units for attending the program. The training program is designed
to appeal to anyone involved in any way with insulation systems, regardless
of job responsibility or level of experience, including: building systems
specialists, mechanical engineers, heating, ventilation and air conditioning
systems specialists, plant managers, facilities engineers, specifiers,
systems designers, estimators, specification writers, and sales
Because facility/plant managers and building owners are generally unaware
of the role insulation plays in their facility or process, they often don't
view it as a critical component. One of the program's goals is to make
attendees aware of the benefits and tremendous savings potential of a
well-engineered insulation system. The course uses actual case studies that
reinforce the benefits of insulation and answer the question: Why insulate?
The class also addresses other crucial aspects of the insulation process, such as determining the right insulation
thickness, installation considerations, the specification process, and the
importance of maintenance.
The cost of attending the program is $795 per person. NIA members are entitled to the discounted rate of $695. Maximum number of class participants is 35. Paid registrations are taken on a first come, first served basis.
